thats normal? but then where does the igniton wire go? because where i made that circle it has an I for igniton im guessing. And when i put the key in the igntion it doesnt even turn over but gets power because the lights work. And when i get out to manually put a screw driver to the ends of the solenoids it dosent even turn over there.

if you jump it form the S terminal to the baterry post, will it turn over or at least click? make sure it's out of gear before you do this. Is this why you changed the starter realy in the 1st place?

If im not mistaken thats the solenoid for the older types with points correct? I think the "I" terminal was to send a full 12v to the points to start the vehicle, but i really cant say for sure my 86 has the 3 post, but the best is to try and jump the solenoid, test the clutch interlock switch, and make sure there is not a short to ground on the power wire going to the starter. i hope this helps.....
